"Best 2k I Ever Spent!" Throwing A Birthday When You Own The Club, Matt Shendell Takes Over Dune

[Photos by Kirill]. When you own a Hamptons nightclub, birthday planning isn't complicated by the worries of all your friends getting in someplace, buying a table, etc.. It allows you to concentrate on other important details, like how to get people pouring tequila down each other's throats. It was just this sort of situation for Dune owner Matt Shendell. Fabolous and DJ Jesse Marco performed at the Asics, Culture Shoq and Perrier-Jouet sponsored birthday party, attended by guests including Jasmin Rosemberg, Zev Norotsky and Rich "Big Daddy" Salgado. Matt's recipe for bringing in another year was as successful as his East End hot spot, as evidenced by the undeniably boozed faces, the straight-from-the-bottle guzzling and general look of throwing down which for some reason is only perfected as an expression when out in the Hampies, very late at night, several drinks in. It's hard to believe that we're a week into August, so while you might be feeling a little fatigued by the weekend warrior schedule, make sure you get in your summer style parting while the getting's good. Party like you're Matt Shendell, even if you don't own a club.
